The official Japanese website of the Nijū-Mensō no Musume television anime series is streaming a new one-minute, 47-second trailer. The trailer first appeared at Tokyo International Anime Fair 2008 late last month. The anime about a female thief will premiere in Japan on April 12.
The story revolves around a female thief named Chico, who is the spiritual successor to the Kaijin Nijū-Mensō (The Fiend with 20 Faces) thief character created by famed suspense and detective novelist Ranpo Edogawa. (Edogawa is a pen name for Tarō Hirai; when written in Japanese family-name-first order, it spells out a Japanese pun for the name of the American suspense and detective author "Edgar Allen Poe.")
